    Somthing that often keeps me going - knowing that all the tears are counted. Here is an interesting fact - when we cry, we release a "happy" hormone that automatically makes you feel better. I don't know what the name of the hormone is, but I do know that it is fact. Now, as a woman I can tell you that I definately feel better after a good cry. This normally happens when I can't carry the load anymore and that small breaking moment just lifts my burdens for a while and I really feel much better. Then I get up and carry on as though nothing happened.

    Getting back to the hormone release, I stand in utter amazement that God would create us like that so when we do cry, we can feel better even just for a moment. If that didn't happen, I'm sure that 99% of the world's population would be depressed. So ultimately, crying is a gift.

    God Bless

    I hope my tears mean something. I pray that they do. The trail of sorrows is a furrowed rut in my life, and my prayer is that I will have no more tears.

    In Him,

    Hang in there bud. It needs to run it's course. One day you will look back and actually say that they were all worthwhile. If you remain faithful to God, it WILL work out to your benefit.

    Lifting you up every moment I can.

    God Bless

    I pray for steadfastness, but am found lacking, I pray for faithfulness, and hold hope in that scripture that says that God remains faithful, even when we are not.

    You demonstrate steadfastness. I thank you and my God for that.

    In this time of trouble, the cares of the world weigh heavy on me, and it impacts the time I spend with the Lord. Cast all you anxieties on me, he says, and I find that so difficult to do, impossible at many times (although the moment passes, but never quickly enough, and I eventually give it up) Even in this, with tears running down my face, I can still choke out a wry and meloncoly [sp] laugh, but I find even that hard to get to.

    My burdens are overwhelming. My joy is suffocated by the pain. I need to share, wholely, boldly and I still hold back in fear. I am sorry to not trust well enough to just do it, but even though you have all been so loving to me, the scars on my heart bleed painfully.

    So anxiety keeps me awake, and depression makes it hard to get out of bed and just put my feet on the floor. You would think that I should have to do more than that before I feel even my actions at the moment are sinful.

    Pray for Me,
